The N.C. Department of Transportation held an open house and public hearing Aug. 8, 2017, on a proposed project that would widen I-440 – between just south of Walnut Street in Cary and north of Wade Avenue in Raleigh.
The formal hearing included an explanation of the location of the project's design options – referred to as detailed study alternatives – land acquisition and relocation requirements as well as project procedures.
The presentation and comments shared during the public hearing were recorded and will be included in a written transcript that will be considered in the selection of the Preferred Alternative for the improvements along the project corridor.
